Launch External Application from web page

User309 2 years ago • updated by Richard 2 years ago 1
Hi there. Is there a way to open an external application from a webpage?
In particular, we have a link in our web-app from which we need to open the SONOS app.

We have tried the Android.openApplication(packagename) javascript function found in http://www.android-kiosk.com/jstest.htm but it doesn't seem to do anything.


Thank you in advanced for any help,

Chris.-

You need to place images in the kioskbrowser/screensaver folder. Then enable the screensaver in Settings > Display.

Further information is available in the screensaver article.

This feature is now live in the form of a graph. It will take a few hours for statistics to start populating.

Get wifi/cellular data usage

James Sampford 2 years ago • updated by Richard 1 year ago 5

Showing the current monthly wifi/cellular data usage details via javascript would be a good addition, as it could show developers where they could be optimising their kiosk and/or provide a better insight into data plans that may be required for 3G SIMs.


Same data could also feed back to remote management app for remote viewing
